    I can confirm as well that the ONLY factor (once minimums are passed) for non-Maritimers pre interview is the connection essay.

    So Duck, in the ottawa thread has inside knowledge, and said that Ottawa this year is using the ABS (what i mean by EC's) for applications unlike last year. Forget if they said before or post interview. Just find the thread, I got back from work so gunna relax xD.

    Back that. Timed is especially key. Get into the rhythm and into the CARS pace. Although I didnt hit a 129, I jumped three points and I think the timing was everything! Had music playing in my head to keep me calm, took huge breaths between each passage and before I started cars (also dragged my break)

    I wouldn't worry about it! If you look back further in the forums, this happens every year. Pretty sure they are just in the middle of assessing the applications and, in the past, the system down time has related to that. But, if you are really worried about it you can always contact the admissions office for clarification.

    I put publications as well as my position as the author (first, second, etc) in the 3000 character box at the end. 
    Conferences/posters/presentations I put under ECs.
    Grants, IMO, should go under scholarships/awards and you can explain a bit about them (agency, competition, etc) in that extra 3000 character space.

    There's an additional section that allows you to enter 3000 characters. I think I would put it in there.

    hartk48 reacted to robclem21 in Publishing my undergraduate thesis   
    I would say you being lazy is not just a problem, it's a huge problem... If this is something you really want to do and think it is worthwhile, then you need to find the motivation to put the work in and get it done. If it was that easy to just "publish" something then it wouldn't really have much value to it now would it?
    You have a couple options here, however both will likely require you to put in a lot of work and reduce the length of your paper to <5 pages (10-15 is a very very long manuscript). If you have never done this before, it will take a lot of support and revisions from your supervisor. The first option is to publish it in a student journal. This process is faster and less rigorous, but you will still need approval from your supervisor and others who have contributed to the work. The second option is to go for a peer-reviewed journal which will require substantially more work in terms of revisions, reviewer comments, and resubmission (possibly to several journals if it keeps getting rejected). This way however, will be much more valuable to have on your CV in the long run.
    There is nowhere you can just upload a 57 page document and have it "published". That would be more of a blog, and chances are, once you copyright it on a blog, most journals will not be willing to accept it for a publication. Food for thought...

    looking at stats can help you determine your chances, for any school. Mac is the easiest to determine because they actually tell you how you are ranked.
    Third variable you need to consider is CASper, if you get an average grade on it, i'd say 129 on cars minimum. If your casper is phenomenal, you might be able to slip by with a 128

    I thought the questions are not too bad, but typing your answers made Casper a beast! This is my first time writing it and I thought it was fun doing it, but I'm definitely not sure about my performance  I'm more terrified of my mcat score  . Nevertheless, All the best to everyone applying this year

    The feeling of void, emptiness, and lack of purpose after studying day and night for 3.5 months for the MCAT and writing casper 23 hours later is killing me now.
